Sports Premium

Strategy for Sport Premium Grant Academic Year 2018-19

Background The Government is continuing to provide substantial primary school sport funding in 2019-20. This funding is to be spent by Head Teachers on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children and to encourage children to develop healthy, active lifestyles. The purpose of the funding is to improve schools’ provision of PE and sport, and schools will have the freedom to choose how they do this. Funding Allocation for 2019 to 2020 Allocations of funding for the academic year 2019 to 2020 are calculated using the number of pupils in years 1 to 6, as recorded in the January 2019 census, as follows:

  • schools with 17 or more pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil
  • Tysoe will receive a total of £17,050 (£16,000 and £1,100)

Impact of Funding 2018-19 The school received a grant of £17,050 in the academic year 2018-19. See the attached table for breakdown of spending and plans for 2019-20
